This paper presents a model where young and old workers compete for one type of jobs in the presence of retirement opportunity. Within this framework, we show that increased retirement opportunities (such as early retirement) has most of the time a depressing impact on the unemployment rate. Indeed the number of vacancies posted by fi rms is influenced by the probability that an old worker is going into retirement. We show that the degree to which younger workers are influenced by retirement of older workers depends on the relative productivity of young and older workers. It is only when older workers are much more productive than young workers that retirement may bene fit to unemployment. [less ▲]

« Une vidéo, un texte, une présentation powerpoint ou un quizz sont autant de supports à l'apprentissage pour nos étudiants. L'usage de ces "objets", quelle que soit leur origine mais à plus forte raison lorsque ces objets sont externes, nécessite cependant une réflexion institutionnelle, technique et pédagogique si nous voulons qu'ils participent efficacement à l'apprentissage de nos étudiants. Au niveau institutionnel, les enseignants doivent se sentir soutenus dans leurs efforts d'amélioration de leurs enseignements et des formations/accompagnements doivent exister pour ceux qui souhaitent améliorer leur pratique. Au niveau technique, des outils doivent être choisis et promus de façon à ne pas imposer à chaque enseignant une comparaison des formules existantes. Poser des choix et en informer les enseignants tout en leur laissant une grande flexibilité dans l’adoption d’outils alternatifs faciliteront l’extension de l’usage des objets. Au niveau pédagogique, les objets externes doivent être intégrés dans des parcours (des cours en ligne ou des successions d'activités) au même titre que les objets conçus par les enseignants eux-mêmes : des consignes claires renseigneront l'étudiant sur ce qu'il est supposé faire de ces objets (simplement les parcourir ? Ou soumettre une production en rapport avec ces objets? De quel type ? En groupe ou de façon individuelle?...), les activités correspondant aux objectifs du cours ou à la carte des compétences à développer pour le cours en question. Quel que soit le niveau auquel on se place, l’information aux enseignants est cruciale. En effet, s’ils ne connaissent pas l’existant, les enseignants auront bien du mal à modifier leurs pratiques pour faire place à cet existant. Il nous faut relayer les choix institutionnels, informer sur les outils et les bases d’objets existantes et illustrer leurs usages les plus efficaces. Le défi est essentiellement d’ordre pédagogique car utiliser de tels objets suppose un enseignant ouvert à la remise en question, un cours bien articulé, actif et dynamique, et souvent des trajectoires partiellement individualisées ainsi que des composants en ligne. L’évolution de nos pratiques est en cours, le métier d’enseignant se transforme, il revient à nos institutions de soutenir ces transformations. » [less ▲]

Die deutsche „Westforschung“ zwischen Weimar und Bonn: Kontinuitäten und Brüche am Beispiel der Biographie von Franz Thedieck Vorstellung des Post-Dok-Projekts in der transnationalen Doktorandenschule – Saarbrücken 26.-27.11.2009 – Dr. Christoph Brüll (FNRS-ULg) Für jene Wissenschaftler und Funktionäre, die im Rahmen der deutschen „Westforschung“ ihre Energie und Kompetenz in den Dienst politischer Aspirationen einer deutschen Hegemonie gestellt hatten und damit dazu beitrugen, aus den Geisteswissenschaften „Legitimationswissenschaften“ (Peter Schöttler) zu machen, bedeutete das Ende der deutschen Besatzungsherrschaft auch eine biographische Zäsur. Anhand eines plurimethodischen Ansatzes aus Politik-, Mentalitäts-, Institutionen- und Wissenschaftsgeschichte werden die Strategien dieser Universitätsforscher und Karrierebeamten analysiert, in der direkten Nachkriegszeit die Entnazifizierung zu überstehen, alte Netzwerke an die neuen Zeiten anzupassen und Diskurse dem neuen Umfeld der jungen Bundesrepublik anzupassen. Im Mittelpunkt steht dabei die Person von Franz Thedieck (1900-1995) einem Juristen, der als Mitglied der Zentrums-Partei in den zwanziger Jahren als Sonderbeauftragter des Preußischen Innenministeriums und in der NS-Zeit als Reichsbeauftragter die Volkstumspolitik in Eupen-Malmedy koordinierte. Während des Zweiten Weltkriegs amtierte er als Oberkriegsverwaltungsrat in der Brüsseler Militärverwaltung, wo er die Kulturpolitik mitbestimmte und die Beziehungen zum belgischen Hochklerus gewährleistete. 1943 wurde er wegen „Begünstigung katholischer Interessen“ entlassen und in die Wehrmacht eingezogen. Nach Kriegsende bemühte er sich um Aufnahme in die Kölner Stadtverwaltung, gehörte zu den Gründern der CDU und wurde 1949 Staatssekretär im Ministerium für Gesamtdeutsche Fragen. Nach seiner Pensionierung leitete er die Adenauer-Stiftung und den Deutschlandfunk. Auf der Basis dieser Eckdaten geht der Vortrag der Frage nach, wie man Kontinuitäten und Brüche einer solchen Biographie in die deutsche (und belgische) Geschichte des 20. Jahrhundert einordnen kann.

A compound drop is made of a millimetric water drop encapsulated by an oil shell. They are obtained by merging one drop of each component (water and oil). Afterwards, they are laid on a high viscosity oil bath which is vertically vibrated. When the forcing acceleration is higher than a given threshold, compound drops can bounce on the surface. We show that above a second threshold some oil contained in the shell enters in the inner water droplet. In a second experiment, we drop the compound droplet on the oil bath at rest. We can determine the range of impact speed in which capillary waves developed on the surface are able to generate an oil drop (coming from the shell) in the water drop. When the bouncing trajectories of the droplets are analyzed a correlation between the emulsion threshold and the static analysis can be made. [less ▲]

Non-contact optical measurement methods are essential tools in many industrial domain. Hololab developed an original out of plane, in line and almost common path interferometer based on polarization states separation using a coated prism for fringes projection. This setup has proven efficient in the field of arts and archaeology but does not meet the demands of the industrial world. Above the acquisition speed and the post treatment process, one of the disadvantages comes from the sensitivity of the system to the environment. To overcome this disadvantage, the coated prism is substituted by a Savart plate. This device has already been used in another field of optical metrology as a shearing device. Many advantages of the prism substitution are discussed and recorded fringes patterns will be shown. [less ▲]

Je commencerai d’abord par retracer brièvement le contexte dans lequel s’inscrit cette thèse – contexte qui me semble marqué par une critique de la théorie correspondantiste de la vérité. J’évoquerai ensuite un certain débat qui est apparu chez les héritiers de Lotze et qui concerne le statut logique des propositions fausses (et, subsidiairement, des propositions interrogatives).

Composite materials are known to combine interesting properties of different materials. This research concerns magnesium alloys reinforced by carbon fibres weaves. Such a material can theoretically exhibit a yield strength/density ratio around 500 compared to ~200 for Ti6Al4V and ~125 for Al2024-T6. This composite is thought to be especially promising for aeronautics if interaction between fibres and magnesium can be controlled and optimized. The strategy studied to enhance interaction between matrix and fibres consists in covering a thin layer of carbide former metal (Zr, Ti) by PVD as a primary treatment of carbon weaves. This intermediate product can then be heated up between 300-700°C in an argon atmosphere in order to form stable carbides. The wetability of treated weaves by liquid magnesium is potentially higher because carbides are not fully covalent (partially metallic) and so they can have more interface interaction with liquid metals. Further crystal lattice parameters of particular carbides can be close to the ones of metal crystal lattices and interface energy can consequently be reduced when they form carbide-metal bonds. Furthermore magnesium is known for its high oxygen attraction and is able to reduce a lot metallic oxides. It is a key fact because liquid magnesium easy wets its oxide in certain conditions.

Faculties at the University of Liège, just like so many of their academic colleagues worldwide, have to write and orally present a syllabus for each of their courses every year. Although very demanding, this effort is clearly described by many authors as an important opportunity to make a decisive first impression and to favourably affect students’ attitude and perceptions toward a given course regarding their personal needs and motivation notably. Even if the hypothesis seem plausible and inspiring for practice at first sight, the likelihood of a given syllabus to actually impact those perfection in the right way still has to be experienced. So, for a syllabus whose qualities / characteristics seem to make it likely or not to impact positively or negatively learners’ perceptions of courses linked to their motivation and individual needs, will consistent effects be observed on the ones who have read / heard it? Among the students’ perceptions that an effective syllabus would be likely to positively impact according to the literature, some appear to correspond to the three determining factors of the motivational dynamics’ model from Roland Viau [1997]: the perception of controllability [Bain, 2004; Lang, 2006; Hudd, 2003], the perception of activities value [Wasley, 2008, Hammons & Shock, 1994; Johnson, 2006] and the perception of competency [Slattery & Carlson, 2005; Madson, Melchert, Whipp, 2004]. Other theoretical benefits of the syllabus on students’ attitude refer to the “consideration of what students need in order to be successful learners” [Hess & Whittington, 2003] or the support of “developmental needs of the students” [Haugen, 1998]. Here, items used to check learners’ perceptions and to observe if “the syllabus addresses the question of whether the class will meet student needs” [Birdsall, 1989] have been closely related to the levels of Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs Chart. In 2008, within its mandatory program of pedagogical training for new faculties, the IFRES (Institute for Training and Research in Higher Education) has created a thematic seminar offering guidelines to promote syllabi aiming notably to motivate students and meet developmental needs. At the beginning of the following academic year, ten syllabi and introduction speeches - meant to Freshmen or Sophomores and designed by ten faculties who followed the seminar - were collected and recorded in order to be analyzed. Their likelihood to impact the targeted students’ perceptions was then rated according to criteria rigorously derived from literature. During the second class of the ten teachers, questionnaires were submitted to their 1300 First/Second-Year students in order to investigate the possible corollary impact of those transmitted pieces of information on their concerned perceptions. In order to measure hypothetical gains due to syllabi, couples of symmetrical pre and post items were included. Data collected from the students concerning their post perceptions and their answers about their reading / hearing or not of their respective syllabi /oral speeches are currently crossed. Chi squares are calculated to identify significant relationships between them, as well as correlations indexes. Afterwards, synoptic tables are produced to observe consistencies between ratings of teachers’ performances and students’ levels of declared perceptions. At this stage, it appears that variables regarding motivation are clearly independent for about 2/3 of the studied relations. Nevertheless, considering the cases where the X²test indicate links between the data, concrete consistencies can be observed between the ratings obtained from the content analysis of syllabi or speeches and the observed percentages of students declaring good perceptions. Besides, the comparison of the percentages of students declaring good perceptions before and after having received syllabi and speeches clearly indicate frequent consistencies with the syllabi’s ratings on the same variables. Looking at the impressive number of universities everywhere asking or urging their teachers to produce syllabi for each of their courses, it seems obvious that this task has become a classic in any faculty’s pedagogical practice. This generalization also seems to indicate a consensus on the fact that this effort make sense and can be useful, particularly for students. This research aims to objectify this usefulness in order to guide and promote professors’ reflection on effective syllabus - for instance in the context of a regulated training seminar -, especially since it is also considered to benefit as planning tool for faculties [Littlefield, 1999; Matejka & Kurke, 1994 ; Sinor & Kaplan], or as permanent record for promotions or program consistency [Parkes & Harris, 2002; Leibow, 2003 ; Seldin, 1998].

Background: Rodents are recognized as hosts for at least 60 zoonotic diseases and may represent a serious threat for human health. In the context of global environmental changes and increasing mobility of humans and animals, contacts between pathogens and potential animal hosts and vectors are modified, amplifying the risk of disease emergence. An accurate identification of each rodent at a specific level is needed to understand their implications in the transmission of diseases. Among Muridae, the Rattini tribe encompasses 167 species inhabiting South East Asia, a hotspot of both biodiversity and, emerging and re-emerging diseases. The region faces growing economical development that affects habitats, biodiversity and health. Rat species have been demonstrated as main hosts of pathogens but are still difficult to recognize at a specific level using morphological criteria. DNA-barcoding methods appear as the only tool for accurate rat species identifications but their usefulness is hampered by the need of reliable identifications of reference specimens. To provide a rigorous systematic framework for epidemiological surveys, we used DNA data to explore the limits of the current taxonomy of the Rattini tribe. Results: As morphological characters are often misleading, we decided to use the DNA sequence information itself as the primary information source to establish group membership and estimate putative species boundaries. We sequenced two mitochondrial and one nuclear genes from 122 rat samples to perform phylogenetic reconstructions and applied the method developed by Pons and colleagues (2006) that determines with no a prior expectations, the locations of ancestral nodes defining putative species. To give an appropriate name to each cluster recognized as a valid species, we reviewed information from the literature and obtained sequences from a museum holotype specimen following all the ancient DNA criteria. One of the most striking results is that at least 6 putative species including a new cryptic one could exist among the Rattus rattus species group. Conclusions: Using a suitable methodology, this study succeeds in refining the taxonomy of one of the most difficult groups of mammals and lays the foundations to better investigate rodent-born diseases in South East Asia. Recognition of a new cryptic Rattus species in Southeast Asia could have serious implications for human health since each species is expected to have its own ecological traits and to carry its own set of diseases. To finish, first results based on independent nuclear DNA data (microsatellite loci) will be briefly exposed to demonstrate that defining species is not an easy task. [less ▲]
